Mitt Romney in July 2012 in New Hampshire

Romney is a wimp and a fanatic at the same time. He said he would fight marijuana "tooth and nail". He means it. Most people grow out of early religious militancy, and moderate their views. Not Romney. From the article, The Wrath of Grapes, April 21, 2012 by Timothy Egan of the New York Times:
We know from a rare personal admission that Mitt Romney experienced a faint whiff of alcohol, a long, long time ago. “I tasted a beer and tried a cigarette once as a wayward teenager,” he said last November [2011], “and never tried it again.”

From Why don’t Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church’s law of health and proper diet?

Quote from the New Hampshire event in late July 2012 (emphasis added): "The idea of medical marijuana is designed to help get marijuana out in the public marketplace and ultimately lead to legalization of marijuana overall. And in my view that's the wrong way to go. ... I'm opposed to it, and if you elect me president you're not going to see legalized marijuana. I'm going to fight it tooth and nail."

Romney Really Doesn’t Want to Talk About Medical Marijuana. Article and video. By Jon Walker. May 11, 2012. Just Say Now. "While in Colorado, local CBS Denver reporter Shaun Boyd asked Mitt Romney about his position on medical marijuana and the candidate was not happy. Romney became visibly upset about the question. He repeatedly interrupted the reporter and chided her for even asking him about it. ... When Romney did finally get around to answering the question he said that he does think marijuana shouldn’t be legal in this country and that he believes it is a gateway drug. ... With 77 percent of the country believing medical marijuana should be allowed Romney is in a tiny minority on this issue. If I were a politician and my position on a particular issue was extremely unpopular, I, too, would hate being asked about it."

"I'm not in favor of medical marijuana being legal". Oct. 6, 2007. In New Hampshire Mitt Romney responds to a man in a wheelchair with muscular dystrophy. Romney refuses to answer the man when asked if he would arrest the man and his doctors. Youtube link. See here for closed-caption version.
